notes on the share

It's going to be a hot week!  To keep things cool in the kitchen, I recommend making a few big batches of coleslaw with the cabbage and onions, and whipping up some pesto with the basil to have over pasta.  Zucchini and Radicchio are both great grilled (as well as the onions).  The toscano kale isn't looking so beautiful this week, but tastes just fine and would be a good addition to soup, or made into kale chips (see recipe below). 

News from the Farm

More beautiful sunny & dry weather predicted for the coming week. All the crops are looking good!  The garlic was harvested over the weekend and is hanging to dry in the barns. Everything smells like garlic-- which I happen to love!
